I could never understand how people, like you, could master oil painting to such a high level - you have the incredible ability to express some of the deepest and most beautiful sensations with oil. I've tried working with it... didn't work out that well. I'm trying to stick with the acrylic.

This painting is beautifully drawn and it inspires me.

Thank you Dina. I prefer oils as they don't dry so fast, there are more colours available and I love the smell! Everyone has different styles and techniques. I pay attention to detail and take my time to get it as good as I can within the time I allow. This one took around 35 hours over 3 weeks... Keep practicing and you'll get there... :bye:
